  • No its not. The best thing to drink, honestly, is ICE cold water. Its so cold your body burns calories warming itself back up.

  • my doc recommended to leave it alone. says it's worse than regular and loaded with hidden sugar. not sure how true it is but i do know it's very addictive.

  • No. It affects your insulin levels. When sweet stuff comes in, your body releases insulin. Then, your blood sugar crashes in response, making you crave sugar to balance out. Of course, one goes overboard with that. Plus, the coloring and additives are not the best things for you.
